The location and facilities were great. Couldn't have asked for a better weekend getaway. The view from the bluff was fantastic. Clay had furnished the house with practically everything we needed. Would love to visit again.

Stay for unmatched relaxation and terrific view. Home was built in the late 50's. Home interior is original and just like mom and dad had it for us back in the day. Nostalgic but very nice and functional.

About the neighbourhood
This property is secluded in the back of a neighborhood on the bluff of the Tennessee River. It has been said the view from the back yard is the most magnificent view in the entire area. Someone once commented that this view is better than what most billionaires see every morning. The middle class neighborhood where the house is located is safe and excellent for walkers and runners. Speaking of runners the property is only about three minutes by car to a three mile walking/biking trail through the TVA reservation. The property also has tennis courts within a 3-5 minute walk. The property is less than five minutes from the Downtown Florence area which has a great selection of dining opportunities.
